This 2 song 7″ was released as part of Run For Cover’s subscription series. MBWML is a Canadian band that makes some gravelly punk rock. It’s moody, it’s melodic, and I think it’s super well rounded. In my opinion, this is the best “under the radar” band making this sort of music right now. If they ever record a full length, I’ll be all over it. These 2 songs are particularly brooding, relying on guitar leads that are kinda low on the register and strong, cathartic choruses. Another great release for a young band with loads of potential. If you like this, check out their last 7″.

Mockingbird Wish Me Luck come from Kitchener, Ontario. These guys are my new favorite punk band, à la Hot Water Music, RVIVR, Small Brown Bike, etc. They just finished a Canadian tour with the awesome band Sharks, and as far as I know, this is their latest release. It’s only a 2 song 7″, but it packs a serious punch. Trust me, just pick this up if you are into any of the aforementioned bands. These songs are going to be on heavy rotation for me this summer, I can already tell.
P.S. Go pick up their 2009 release “Goodbye Debris” right here while you’re at it.
